The Jonas Brothers are reuniting after a five-year hiatus — and they’ve announced it in a very millennial way.
To mark their return, the band — consisting of Nick Jonas, Joe Jonasand Kevin Jonas — recreated their ‘Oh, how the tables have turned’ YouTube video, which went viral back in 2008.
In the old video, Nick and Kevin could be seen lifting up and spinning a table around before Joe walks into the room and says “Oh, how the tables have turned.”
In the new video, after Joe says the famous line, confetti pops and a sign appears with words, “Hello Again.”
“Just for you guys,” they captioned the new version on their band’s Instagram page.
Rumours of a reunion first spread in early 2018 when the band’s idle Instagram account was suddenly reactivated. While they downplayed the rumours back then, today Nick has confirmed that they had indeed been discussing reforming since around the same time.
“It’s nice to be able to finally tell somebody,” he said in a teaser clip from James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke. “We’ve kept this a secret now for almost seven, eight months. This is basically our first performance back.”
To which Kevin joked, “We’ve gotta dust off the cobwebs.”
Tomorrow the band will release their first single in five years called ‘Sucker’, and next week they will take over The Late Late Show with James Corden, partaking in the host’s infamous Carpool Karaoke and Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts segments. They’ll also perform their single live for the first time.
The trio stepped away from the limelight in 2013, with Nick telling People at the time that they “prioritising our family is really important to us.” Kevin further explained that they were “choosing our family because [fame] was becoming toxic.”
They’ve certainly done that with their personal lives now flourishing. Kevin has two adorable daughters with wife Danielle Jonas. Joe is engaged to Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.
And Nick recently married actress Priyanka Chopra in a wedding extravaganza in her native India.
“And yes they’re back…and may I say… hotter than ever. So proud of the family,” Priyanka gushed on Instagram of the group’s return.
